I know there’s hype and discord and whatever else going on with Wednesday and purple and what it means, etc.
I will be wearing purple tomorrow (just gotta find something), in memory of the 6 boys who committed suicide. I will be wearing purple tomorrow in honour of members of the LGBTQ community as a whole. I will be wearing purple tomorrow in memory of everyone who has committed suicide.
I am not going to ask you to wear purple, too. If you are okay with it, then I am glad, if you are not, then who am I to judge?
There is one thing I will ask you though… and that is to write love on your arms. It’s not “official,” it’s not being spread around… it’s just a request from me to you. So maybe only two or three people do it… that’s not important.
Whatever your opinions on suicide, homosexuality, bullying, etc., may be… I know we can all agree that this world needs a little more love.
TWLOHA is the reason I am still here today. It’s all well and good to wear different colours for different things…. but you have to mean it, believe it. I’m asking you to love, and show your love. You don’t have to wear purple, you don’t have to support homosexual marriage, I don’t care. But consider this, because it’s the real reason behind the wearing of purple.
Even if you don’t write it on your arm… take the time to show a little more love to just one person.
It’ll make a difference.
